 TROPARUL ŞI VIAŢA SF. MC. FLOR ŞI LAVRU

18 august

Pomenirea Sfintilor Mucenici Flor si Lavru.

Flor si LavruAcesti sfinti au fost dupa trup frati gemeni, si aveau mestesugul de taietori în piatra, pe care-l învatasera de la Sfintii Proclu si Maxim care marturisisera pentru Hristos. Dupa ce au marturisit dascalii lor pentru Hristos, ei s-au dus la Iliric, în tara Dardaniei, în cetatea Ulpianilor, unde cercând pietre de metaluri, îsi savârseau mestesugul lor pe lânga Licon ighemonul. Apoi au fost trimisi de acesta catre Liciniu feciorul Elpidiei împarateasa. Liciniu dându-le bani, le-a poruncit sa zideasca o capiste idoleasca, dându-le si planul acesteia. Dar sfintii luând banii, i-au împartit la saraci; si noaptea se rugau catre Dumnezeu, iar ziua lucrau tare si înfrumusetau locasul; si peste putine zile l-au si ispravit, fiind sfintii ajutati si întariti de îngeri. Atunci îndata Merentie popa cel idolesc a crezut în Hristos, crezând mai înainte si fiul sau Atanasie, caci îi tamaduisera sfintii ochiul cel orb al lui. Si strângând mucenicii lui Hristos saracii, carora le dadusera banii, au legat idolii cu streanguri de grumaji, si i-au tras jos.

Dupa aceea, aprinzând lumânari multe, au închinat biserica lui Dumnezeu si o sfintira lui Hristos, zicând: „Slava Tie, Hristoase Dumnezeule, lauda Apostolilor si bucuria mucenicilor”, înainte-mergând cinstita Cruce.

Iar daca a aflat Liciniu de aceasta, a poruncit sa se aprinda un cuptor si sa bage în el pe saracii care luasera banii si sfarâmasera idolii; în care aceia si-au dat sufletele.

Iar Sfintii Flor si Lavru, fiind legati la roata unui car, au fost batuti, apoi au fost trimisi la ighemonul Licon, care i-a bagat într-un put adânc, unde se rugau lui Dumnezeu si pentru cei ce aveau sa le faca pomenirea, si pentru bunastarea lumii, pentru încetarea prigoanei; si asa si-au dat sufletele. Peste câtiva ani au fost scoase cinstitele lor moaste din put, si asezate cu cinste în racle, care izvorau miruri si izvoare de tamaduiri celor ce se apropiau de ele

Ἦταν δίδυμα ἀδέλφια καὶ ἦταν ἄρρηκτα ἑνωμένοι διὰ τῆς θερμῆς πίστεως καὶ ἀγάπης ποὺ εἶχαν πρὸς τὸ Χριστό. Κατάγονταν ἀπὸ τὸ Βυζάντιο καὶ εἶχαν διδαχθεῖ τὸν χριστιανισμὸ καὶ τὴν τέχνη τοῦ λιθοξόου ἀπὸ τοὺς Ἁγίους Πρόκλο (καὶ ὄχι Πάτροκλο, ὅπως λανθασμένα γράφεται ἀπὸ ὁρισμένους Συναξαριστές, καὶ ποὺ ἡ μνήμη του ἔτσι λανθασμένα ἐπαναλαμβάνεται καὶ τὴν 21ηἸανουαρίου) καὶ Μάξιμο, οἱ ὁποῖοι ὑπέστησαν καὶ μαρτυρικὸ θάνατο γιὰ τὸν Χριστό.

Μετὰ τὸν θάνατο τῶν διδασκάλων τους, ὁ Φλῶρος καὶ ὁ Λαῦρος ἀναχώρησαν στὴν Ἰλλυρία καὶ διάλεξαν σὰν τόπο διαμονῆς τους τὴν πόλη Οὐλπιανά. Στὴν πόλη αὐτὴ ἐργάζονταν τὴν τέχνη τους, ἀλλὰ συγχρόνως μέσῳ αὐτῆς προσπαθοῦσαν γιὰ τὴν ἐξάπλωση τοῦ Εὐαγγελίου.

Ἐκεῖ ὑπῆρχε καὶ κάποιος ἱερέας εἰδώλων, ὀνομαζόμενος Μερέντιος. Ὁ γιὸς αὐτοῦ Ἀθανάσιος ἀπὸ τὸ ἕνα του μάτι ἔπαθε τύφλωση, ποὺ ἀπὸ τὴν ἰατρικὴ ἐπιστήμη δὲ βρῆκε θεραπεία. Τότε πλησίασε τοὺς δυὸ τεχνῖτες ἀδελφούς, οἱ ὁποῖοι μὲ τὴν ἐπίκληση τοῦ ὀνόματος τοῦ Χριστοῦ θεράπευσαν τὸ μάτι τοῦ γιοῦ τοῦ εἰδωλολάτρη ἱερέα, μὲ ἀποτέλεσμα νὰ πιστέψουν καὶ οἱ δύο στὸν Χριστό. Αὐτὸ μόλις τὸ ἔμαθε ὁ ἔπαρχος Λύκων, συνέλαβε τοὺς δύο ἀδελφοὺς καί, ἀφοῦ τοὺς βασάνισε φρικτά, τοὺς ἔριξε μέσα σὲ ἕνα πηγάδι, ὅπου καὶ παρέδωσαν τὸ πνεῦμα τους.
Ἔτσι, οἱ δυὸ τεχνῖτες ἀδελφοὶ μπῆκαν στὴν αἰώνια πόλη, «ἧς τεχνίτης καὶ δημιουργὸς ὁ Θεός». Τῆς ὁποίας, δηλαδή, τεχνίτης καὶ κτίστης εἶναι αὐτὸς ὁ Θεός.

Ἀπολυτίκιον. Ἦχος πλ. α’. Τὸν συνάναρχον Λόγον.
Εὐσεβείας τοῖς τρόποις ἐγγυμναζόμενοι, τοῦ μαρτυρίου τὴν τρίβον διαπερᾶτε καλῶς, ὡς αὐτάδελφοι κλεινοὶ Χριστὸν δοξάσαντες· ὅθεν γεραίρομεν ὑμᾶς, ὡς γενναίους Ἀθλητάς, Φλῶρε καὶ Λαῦρε βοῶντες· Ἀπὸ παντοίας ἀνάγκης, ῥύσασθε πάντας ἡμᾶς Ἅγιοι.

Κοντάκιον. Ἦχος γ’. Ἡ Παρθένος σήμερον.
Ἡ δυὰς ἡ ἔνθεος, τῶν ἱερῶν αὐταδέλφων, τῆς Τριάδος ἔχουσα, τὸ ἀπροσμάχητον κράτος, ᾔσχυνε, τῶν παρανόμων τὰς ἐπινοίας· ἤθλησε, μέχρι θανάτου ἐνδρειοφρόνως· οἷς βοήσωμεν ἐκ πόθου· χαίρετε Λαῦρε καὶ Φλῶρε ἔνδοξοι.

Μεγαλυνάριον.
Σύμφρων καὶ ὁμόψυχος ἐν παντί, ἡ τῶν αὐταδέλφων, ἀναδέδεικται ξυνωρίς, Φλῶρός τε καὶ Λαῦρος, ἐν βίῳ καὶ ἐν ἄθλοις· διὸ καὶ ἰσοτίμως ἐμεγαλύνθησαν.

The Martyrs Florus and Laurus were brothers by birth not only in flesh but in spirit. They lived in the second century at Byzantium, and afterwards they settled in Illyria [now Yugoslavia]. By occupation they were stone-masons (their teachers in this craft were the Christians Proclus and Maximus, from whom also the brothers learned about life pleasing to God). 

The prefect of Illyria, Likaion, sent the brothers to a nearby district for work on the construction of a pagan temple. The saints toiled at the structure, distributing to the poor the money they earned, while they kept strict fast and prayed without ceasing. 

Once, the son of the local pagan-priest Mamertin carelessly approached the structure, and a chip of stone hit him in the eye, severely injuring him. Sts Florus and Laurus assured the upset father, that his son would be healed. 

They brought the youth to consciousness and told him to have faith in Christ. After this, as the youth confessed Jesus Christ as the true God, the brothers prayed for him, and the eye was healed. In view of such a miracle, even the father of the youth believed in Christ. 

When the construction of the temple was completed, the brothers gathered the Christians together, and going through the temple, they smashed the idols. In the eastern part of the temple they set up the holy Cross. They spent all night in prayer, illumined with heavenly light. Having learned of this, the head of the district condemned to burning the former pagan priest Mamertin and his son and 300 Christians. 

The martyrs Florus and Laurus, having been sent back to the prefect Likaion, were thrown down an empty well and covered over with earth. After many years, the relics of the holy martyrs were uncovered incorrupt, and transferred to Constantinople. In the year 1200 the Novgorod pilgrim Anthony saw them. Stephen of Novgorod saw the heads of the martyrs in the Pantokrator monastery around the year 1350.
